Michael John Ciszewski is a Boston-based actor and writer. He started telling stories to entertain and/or mislead his big, loud, Greek family to his desired effect while growing up in Northern New Jersey and hasn't stopped since. He loves pop music, craft cocktails, and his mother. Michael has recently been seen onstage as Baron Tusenbach in Apollinaire Theatre's THREE SISTERS by Anton Chekhov, Rafi in Boston Public Works' sci-fi epic CITIZENS OF THE EMPIRE by Kevin Mullins, Rob in Open Theatre Project’s GAY SHORTS, and Lysander & Flute in New Repertory Theatre's A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM. He’s a proud alum of the Boston University School of Theatre, where he earned a BFA in Theatre Arts.

Timeless Greek Tragedy Antigone
After many collaborations with Flat Earth–adjacent companies such as New Rep & Boston Public Works, Michael made his Flat Earth Theatre debut as part of the Antigone Chorus.
Bishop C. Knight of the New England Theatre Geek wrote, "The chorus was my favored presence in this play, as these three were a great triad together. I hope that Elbert Joseph, Emily Elmore, and Michael John Ciszewski—who performed masterfully in both spoken English and American Sign Language—feel very proud of the contributions they are making to the theatre community with their bold and intricate interpretation of a Greek Chorus."
